here has been very success phil, especially using his u.n. speech, to put iran and sanctions center stage. the question for the israelis though, which president is going to take a tougher line with iran? obviously the prime minister here feels as though a president romney would take a much tougher line in the debate. vice president biden spent a lot of time trying to assure everyone that the under an obama administration, iran would not be allowed to get a bomb but privately a number of israelis really question the resolve of the obama administration to take the steps necessary for iran or possibly a military strike. jamie? jamie: leland vittert, live in jerusalem. leland, thank you so much. bill: now the morning after how are the two campaigns playing this debate today especially after exchanges like this one? >> 7.4 million seniors are projected to lose the current medicare advantage coverage they have, that is $3200 benefit cut. >> that didn't happen. >> these are from your actuaries. >> more people signed upper for medicare advantage after the change. >> mr. vice president -- so
, it was clearly planned. that to me, was the worst thing that the president could have done. at the u.n. said-- >>> two weeks later. >> he said, this was youtube-- >>> the president knew within 24 hour what is the truth was. i am told that they saw this in real time. there is a video real time. >> but they see it pre-time. i have looked -- i have looked at all the reports, benghazi, april 6, april 11. they have known about the problems months and months and months and months. >> sean: why would they deny security and deny they denied it. >> well, because there is an investigation. look, the republicans want the fast & furious, they want the documents right away. look at what we got-- >>> executive privilege. >> no. >> sean: stonewalling and executive privilege. >> it takes time to get answers to the american people-- >>> last word -- we have to go. >> stephanie cutter is doing anything to limit the damage. the presidential debate, they have been sliding, mitt romney has pulled ahead. they will stop at nothing to try to stop the lies. joe biden, what he did last night, might be illegal, i am n
point was the response to the initial question on libya. >> they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say this is because of a protest and youtube video. >> that is exactly what we were told by intelligence community. >> by who? >> the intelligence community told us that as they learned more facts about exactly what happened. they changed their assessment. >> joe scarborough this morning, as well as in "the daily standard," they said this that biden throws the intelligence community under the bus. what's your thought here? was the vice president not aware of the congressional testimony that happened on tuesday? the full tick tock that had come out? it didn't sync with his answer, necessarily. >> i think there will be more to be said on this today. i'm not going to prejudge what might come out of the state department. let me just say this. what i find disgusting, and american people should find disgusting, on the night this was happening, before we knew the ambassador had been killed, mitt romney decided to politicalize a tragedy in the middle east. >> that is what the vice president said.
support to the whole country, u.s. employees and the whole country, and eric n nordstrom asking for more security and his responses were unanswered and they said they wanted to keep the security presence to a minimum. >> elise, let me stop you there because i'm going to play what andy wood said to cbs news. >> sure. >> -- for enhanced or continued security that we had, that we had known, that we had come to live with and work with there for the environment we had, we felt we needed more, not less. >> $64,000 question, of course, is so why would requests like that go unheard and unanswered? >> that's the big question. when asked who said that, he said the state department superiors. and there is one woman testifying today, charlene lamb, deputy assistant secretary, where it seemed that the buck stopped with her and she was the one that said, you know, need to keep the security to a minimum. soledad, what officials are saying is, listen, there was security improvements made to the consulate, to the office, over the last several months, leading up to the attack because there were other atta
, the ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, you have this state department comments coming out. now we come out to find that those were absolutely not true. they are somewhere between totally false and absolutely not true. it's certainly -- >> i think that that's an exaggeration, congressman. >> no. >> let's play them then. >> what is true about what she said? >> let's first play the -- what ambassador rice had to say. i think she's the one who went on september 16th on "meet the press" went further than everybody. bedon't have that clip. she said she believed it looked like it was connected to protests. she went the furthest. but jay carney, i think that was on september 18th, actually said something not going quite as far. i think we have her sound bite. let's play the ambassador first. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in chiropractor r cairo. almost a copycat demonstrations against our facility in cairo pr
the u.n. on all of these things. >> you don't go through the u.n. we are in the process now and have been for months in making sure that help, humanitarian aid, as well as over aid and training is getting to those forces that we believe, the turks believe, the jordanians believe, the saudis believe are the free forces inside syria. that's under way. >> last question. is it possible that nuance works here? that's what we're talking. we th >> i don't even hear the nuance. we're going to arm our opposition. that's what we're doing. >> what biden said there is not what they did in iran with the student uprisings over two years ago when you had the opportunity to really make a difference on the ground there. >> by the way, the guy who led the opposition and uprising supports a nuclear iran. it gets very tricky. anyway, thank you, michael. if he got in power, he'd be doing the same thing. thank you, michael steele. thank you, gene. >> coming up, our group of undecided voters. this is what i love. stay with us. customer erin swenson bought from us online today. so, i'm happy. sales go up...
. >> they suspect the u.n. ambassador out to say that this was because of a protest and youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and in a speech he said six times, he talked about the youtube video. now they're trying to blame the ryan-romney ticket for making this an issue. >> steve: of course, that's what they were talk being yesterday. so who won? cnn and cnbc did polls and mr. ryan was on top. cbs had one with some focus group. they felt that the vice president won. peggy nuland writes fort second time in two weeks, the democrat came out and defeated himself. in both cases, the republican was strong and the democrat somewhat disturbing. another way to say it is the old man tried it patronize the kid and the kid stood his ground. the old man pushed and the kid pushed back. >> brian: she did not mean that complimentary. >> gretchen: i actually think had is a debate that's going to percolate over a couple of days. when people go back and read and maybe see video and see this reaction, i think it may percolate over time
to the u.n., they can't get a coherent story about what happened now more than a month ago. >> and all the vice president said was we're going to get to the bottom of it. i love what peggy noonan said, "oh, good." >> let me show the clip and then i have a question for you because the night began, right out of the box, martha raddatz went right to libya and the deadly assault that killed four americans. >> it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this was a terrorist attack. look, if we are hit by terrorists, we're going to call it for what it is, a terrorist attack. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but unfortunately, it's indicative of a broader problem, and that is what we are watching on our tv screens is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of malarky. this lecture on embassy security, the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security again. and by the way, at the time we
of the attack provided on "meet the press" by u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice on september 16th, five days after the incident took place. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today. our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video. what we think then transpired in benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> today congress is set to hold a hearing on the attack. it's expected to focus on potential security lapses at the compound and whether the administration originally down-played the link to terrorist elements. >> in "newsweek" this week we're talking about susan rice coming under fire. it seems, though, this story continues to evolve. the white house can't get the story straight. at first it was the video. then it was a spontaneous demonstration, and then it was a terror plot. now
terrorist attack, they send out our u.n. ambassador to tell everybody, on all major news shows that this was a spoon stainio iospontaneo demonstration bred by a hateful video. you don't have spontaneous demonstrations with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades. look, iraq, because we didn't leave a residual force behind, al qaeda's back and iranians are exerting their influence. in afghanistan because the president overruled his military advisers time after time we're seeing this terrible afghans in uniform killing americans in uniform. the palestinian/israeli peace process moved forward, not at all, and the iranians continue on their path to nuclear weapons and 30,000 people have been killed in syria and we do nothing. it's really a failed leadership that i think that mitt romney will be able to capitalize on. finally, t"the military times" s a newspaper for the military men and women, they took a poll of the men and women in uniform, guess who won by almost 3:1, mitt romney, those people know about national security. >> senator, we hear time and time again there will have to
voted for the power because he said he needed it, not to go to war but to keep the trainee, the u.n. in line to keep sanctions on iraq and not let them be lifted. i a long with dick lugar before we went to war said if we were to go to war without our allies, without the kind support we needed, we would be there for a decade, costing us tens of billions of dollars. john mccain said that would be okay. i don't have the stomach for genocide when it comes to darfur. we can now impose a no-fly zone. it's within our capacity. we can lead nato if we're willing to take a hard stand. we can't, i've been in those camps in chad. i've seen the suffering, thousands, tens of thousands of people have died and they are dying. we should rally the world to act and we should demonstrate it by our own movement to provide helicopters to get those 21,000 forces of the african union in their now to stop this genocide. >> moderator: thank you, senator. governor. palin: it's so obvious on a washington outsider. summit is not used to the way you guys operate because you, you voted for the war, and now you op
: mccain. host: we have dennis from ohio. birthplace of neil armstrong. wire u.n. decided this morning? caller: -- why are you undecided this monring? -- morning? did this help to bring some clarity to you? caller: no. the vice president kept interrupting his coworker. he laughed a lot. i don't know if he thought the issues were funny. as far as the president and his running mate, obama said he has created a lot of jobs so the unemployment goes down, but he does not say whether that was manufacturing jobs, flipping hamburgers someplace, and and his cohort says if he gets elected, he will create 12,000 new jobs right away. well, are they in manufacturing? are they going to make government bigger than it is? neither party is clear on anything as far as i am concerned. as far as foreign policy, every time a foreign country sneezes, the united states has to run over to wipe their nose. we have spent millions of dollars over there in wars we are not going to win. i cannot see staying over there and getting our soldiers killed for nothing. that is what i think of the their party. host: that
